Lemon Chicken

By 11 December ,

Today I feel like posting a recipe. If you read some of my previous posts, you would know that I am on the mission to 'love cooking'. Good news! I found that cooking is not that boring, and it doesn't need to be stressful. It's fun! I just need to be ready with the menu for the week, and make sure I get all the ingredients I need when I go for groceries shopping. Yup, for me planning is crucial to avoid stress when I cook. 

So, since my interest on cooking grow I would love to share my foods and recipes on my blog. I already put "Kitchen Story + Recipe" on my drop down menu up there. Find it on the Blog section.

Alright, I will start my Kitchen Story with this Lemon Chicken. One night, my fiance and I were hungry and we decided to order Chinese Take Away. He ordered Lemon Chicken. So inspired by his food, I gave it try on my own kitchen. Glad that I could find all the ingredients. 
Lemon Chicken
4x Chicken Breast (cut into strips)
2x Eggs
3 tablespoon Soy Sauce
3 tablespoon Shaoxing Wine/ Cooking Wine
2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
3 Big Lemons (zest + juice)
Cornstarch (mixed with pa pinch of salt)
1/2 cup Chicken Stock
1/3 cup Sugar
Vegetable oil (for frying)
Sesame seeds 
Steps: The Chicken   

  1. Beat the egg in a medium size bowl. Add soy sauce, shaoxing wine, sesame oil, juice and zest from 1 lemon. 
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, and add the chicken strips. Make sure all the strips are coated. Marinate it for 1-2 hours.

          Steps: The Sauce

  2. Move the chicken to the serving plate, pour the sauce to it, and add sesame seeds. Lemon Chicken is ready.
